In early 2008, LC Corp had bought a construction plot at 10 Roździeńskiego Av. in the City Center and planned to raise a skyscraper. Now the company is applying for new administrative permissions enabling to build there a different type of development. If erected, it will be much lower in comparison with the previous building’s project.
The first scheme of the skyscraper was prepared by the APAKA architectural studio of Stefan Kuryłowicz in 2008. According to the plan, the building was 220 meters high and was mostly designed for apartment units and office spaces. However, the challenging undertaking was discontinued by the developer.
The new project will house offices and commercial areas (retail, service units). It will consist of a 38-meters-high building and a tower reaching 106 meters (27 storeys) to be raised on a common building footing. The facilities would be erected in stages. The complex will feature ground and underground car parks and some green spaces. A total area of the development is 84 000 sq. meters.
The construction plot is situated opposite the cultural district being under construction and just near the newly developed Scientific Information Center and Academic Library. Also the University of Silesia campus is located in the close proximity. LC Corp has paid PLN 80 million for the 1 ha plot.
The company implements residential and commercial project in the largest cities in Poland. It has been listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange since 2007. The majority shareholder of LC Corp S.A. is Leszek Czarnecki.
